Albert Swayhoover

Albert Swayhoover

Albert Swayhoover was born in New York City. He attended SUNY at Farmingdale and the School of Visual Arts, but pursued a career in advertising because he didn't feel a career as a fine artist was financially stable for a young family.

Swayhoover is a self-taught artist and began to study drawing at The Art Student's League in New York. He blends a contemporary feel for colour and light with a more traditional, impressionistic style. He manipulates his chosen medium of oil with painting knives, using a brush for the finer details. He notes, ""I can achieve painterly surfaces without the fussiness of brush strokes. Colours stay vibrant and shapes stay crisp.""

It was after he retired as Art Director and owner of his own advertising agency that he became a full-time painter. He won numerous awards and is a member of the American Society of Marine Artists.
